This recording circulates as 9/21/01, but I believe that it is actually from 9/21/02.
For one, on 9/21/01, Chris Wood was on tour with MMW and Stanton Moore was on tour with Galactic. In fact, both bands were playing the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Festival in Live Oak, FL on that date.
In this recording band mentions that Johnny & Debra Vidacovich are in the house and that it's their anniversary. I checked Debra Vidacovich's facebook page and September 21 is, indeed, their anniversary.
On 9/21/02, MMW played in NOLA at the Southern Comfort Festival and the next day they played at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Fest in Live Oak, FL again.
In this recording the band also mentions that is close to 2am, so this could be the night of the 21st/morning of the 22nd or it could be the night of the 20th/morning of the 21st.
Note: there are some spots of digi-noise in track 1 and maybe some of the other tracks.
